Remember, all we had before Nicholson's Joker was Caser Romero as the joker from the Batman campy TV show. And Nicholsn's Joker was a lot closer to the Joker than that by any strecth of the imagination.


So from what we had to compare with what we previous seen, A campy joker with a white mustache, Nicholson was nailed on. Still, Nicholson performance holds up well even till today. And he was more than scary enough.

Very scary.

However I would have love to see Nicholson portrayed the Joker in the early 80s right after the shinning when he was a little slimmer and I think e would've been REALLY on the money.

IF they would've made the Batman movie back then (like it was orignally intended) Nicholson would been even better.

Mid -Seventies Nicholson + Nolan's interpretation = BEST DAMN VILLIAN IN MOVIE HISTORY!!!!

Thanks Hype for the memories!
